Sunraysia youths will have the chance to show what they're made of in Parliament, with the Government working to support the 2018 YMCA Victorian Youth Parliament Program.
The program helps young people to participate, speak out and introduce mock bills into parliament, with the scheme seeing great success with youths between the ages of 16 and 25 years old.
The scheme has helped shape more than 25 bills over more than 30 years, including laws on mandatory bike helmets, roadside drug testing and drug reforms.
The State Government is sinking more than $100,000 into this year's Victorian Youth Parliament Program.
Locals can visit the Youth section of Mildura Rural City Council's website for more details, or to sign up for the scheme below!
